The Bosnian man, Muhamed Mešić, speaks fluently 56 languages.
Let us wish him: good luck. There are just some other 5944 languages left to learn. :)

Before long, his family realized that there was something special about Muhamed. The doctors who examined him concluded that it was his Asperger’s Syndrome (a light form of Autism) that allowed him to pick up new foreign languages so easily, sometimes unintentionally. He recalls that one time, a friend asked him to learn Latvian so he could accompany him on a business trip, and he was able to become fluent in the Baltic language in just 2 weeks, with the help of YouTube, two books and 43 cartoons.

'Rad', 'psychedelic' and 'gnarly' were once-popular phrases that are now lost to the sands of time.
Now, a new study has found that words such as these seem to fall out of favor after roughly 14 years.

Tamil is the official language of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and the Union territory of Puducherry. It was declared a classical language of India, which means that it met the three compulsory criteria: its origins are ancient; it has an independent tradition; and it possesses a considerable body of ancient literature. In the early 21 st century more than 66 million people were Tamil speakers. http://www.polilingua.com/tamil-translation.htm

As a consequence of British and then Italian colonization, Somali language contains a few Indo-European loanwords like: "telefishen-ka" – television, "raadia-ha” – radio, "garawati" for tie" (from the Italian cravatta), and "bilyeti-ga" for ticket (from the French billet).
The name "Somali" is derived from the words "soo" and "maal", which together mean go and milk - a reference to the ubiquitous pastoralism of the Somali people. Another plausible etymology proposes that the term Somali is derived from the Arabic "dhawamaal" for wealthy, again referring to Somali riches in livestock. In antiquity, Somalia was an important commercial centre. It is among the most probable locations of the fabled ancient Land of Punt (the "Land of the God").
